Dear Sir, you do me wrong! Would I want to play with someone so venerable?

I was merely expressing the regret you must have felt not having been able to visit both the Bala and the nearby Snowdonia distillery!

We both know neither had been built yet when you toured around. A pity, but so be it ...

Your humble servant,

I suffer from the cold at night.

Like first the Germans, and then after the rebellious uprising of 1916 the Fenian traitors, I feel the cold and verminous damp infested sodden mire where I am, like those prisoners did interned in the distillery buildings at Bala.

At least they were imprisoned somewhere where I could know only wish to be.

Trapped here - and also here Sirs - in this endless virtual conversation.

Or is it, pray God be it so, a nightmare ?

I bid you a good, and especially warm night. As the morning sun rises with the colour of the finest whisky, I'm sure your gloomy mood will lift and you'll start the day eager to debate the water of life again!

Where the debate will lead us ... who knows, but as they say in my Czech homeland: "Dabre Dravce"!

Oh Alfred, Alfred. Such a long memory but so selective...

Do you remember? "For the purposes of our argument we shall divide the distilleries of Scotland into six classes: Islay, Glenlivet, North country, Campbeltown, Lowland Malt, and Grain."

And Lagavulin? In the same publication, you describe it as "one of the few HIGHLAND whiskies that can be drunk alone".

An Islay whisky that is a Highland? You must surely confess - you never did quite come to grips with the classification of whiskies!
